The Christmas give-away this year is finally ready. Over the course of the past couple days, I completely changed my plan several times. I won't bore you with the details there. In the end, I decided to make this Christmas Cookie Plate Crumb Catcher. Isn't that a cute name? I keep wanting to call it a Crumb Cruncher, but I think those are the children. This is a Crumb Catcher. It sits under your plate of cookies on the counter or table. It also would make a great candle mat.
The fabric I originally chose for the green squares was about 1/2" shy of being big enough. That left me in a pickle. This green matched, but I wasn't sure I wanted to add snowmen into the mix. Hmmmm.
Sure! Why not?
The pattern for this is a tutorial is on this great blog I found. Here's the link for my quilting friends it if you'd like to stitch one up for yourself or someone you love! It doesn't take much fabric and it works up very fast.
To complete the give-away, I'm tossing in a few goodies I picked up at Parson's General Store in Morehead, NC. I could have gone crazy in that store.
Wait. I did.
I planned the colors of the crumb catcher from this dish towel. Just loved the bright, cheery stripes. And there is a green checked dish cloth to go with it. When the little birdhouse ornament caught my eye, I knew it was coming home with me. I love the way the roof sparkles with glitter! And the balsam Yankee candle is one of my favorite scents for the season. I bought one to give away and one for me to burn at home!
Last, but definitely not least, are these stackable salt and pepper shakers in the shape of a tree and sleigh. So fun!
Well, there it is folks. Somebody is going to win all of it tonight. I'll draw a name when I get home from a gingerbread house decorating party!
